Canada recognizes an independent Montenegro
Harper announced that Canada would recognize Montenegro as an independent country today. Le Monde has an interesting discussion about whether the 55% threshold could serve as a precedent for Canada. Boisclair, not surprisingly, is insisting that 50% plus one is all that is needed. Le Monde points to a La Presse editorial from the end of May I can't find that says the PQ can't ignore the Montenegrin precedent.
